There are no AVPN partners currently engaged with this initiative.


The Ranchi District Administration has been on the front foot to combat COVID-19 from the very beginning. Immediate measures, such as placing adequate checkpoints in areas that were exposed to people travelling in from outside Ranchi. The administration began its work by outlining a plan and releasing guidelines on COVID-19 preparedness.

Hand sanitizers were also found to be in shortage and lacking in affordability during the coronavirus outbreak. Markets were locking down on them and sanitizers were already being sold at around five times the price and it was becoming an exclusive product. To tackle this situation, Ranchi District tried to create alternate solutions for an efficient hand rub.

Various other initiatives, such as, sending cooked/uncooked food to those in need, old-age support, surveillance and monitoring of suspects, phone lines to report, etc., are being undertaken by the administration religiously. To scale up the initiatives, increase their penetration and to act upon the Government of India’s guidelines regarding the CSR initiation, several PSUs (Public Sector Undertaking) were requested to participate and help the administration.
